Watch This! is a multi-perspective meditation on the nature of political and creative dissent and the government's response in a post 9-11world. Shot almost exclusively during the Republican National Convention in New York, this film will surprise you about what really went on in the streets of NYC. A series of personal stories are intertwined to form a disjointedly coherent vision of reality. This complex reality breaks through the superficial nature of current political and social discourse.

A lovely French classic from the 1920s. Silent but with music. Two Young women put up a washing line, strip off and wash their clothes. Excellant quality considering how old the film is. A pleasure to watch.

Many explorer-adventurer hosts of historical/cultural films viewed their subjects as "objects" (e.g. C.

Much of this magnificent...

Outside the Law is a 1920 crime film directed by Tod Browning. Browning remade the film in 1930. Black Mike (Lon Chaney) is a despicable gangster who lures Molly (Priscilla Dean), the daughter of a San Francisco underworld leader, back to a life of crime. Mike frames Molly's father for murder and then plots to double-cross her as well. But Molly's hard heart is slowly melted by her gangster lover. The film ends with in a climactic shootout. The print in a little murky so some title cards are...
